Application Requirements

Applicants must have completed two years of undergraduate coursework (or sixty credit hours) and be enrolled in an accredited education program approved by the Virginia State Department of Education. A person who has completed an undergraduate degree in a program other than education and is enrolled in an approved education program working toward licensure (such as a master’s degree in teaching) in the state of Virginia is also eligible to apply to AATF.

Each applicant must have at least a cumulative GPA of 2.5 and a GPA of 3.0 in education courses or in the academic major.

The qualifications for becoming a Teaching Fellow are stringent. A committee of local educators and AATF board members screens and interviews applicants. The committee considers a number of criteria, including GPA, a writing sample, extracurricular activities, references, and an interview.
